Protecting Children’s Teeth Through Education
Our aim is to work towards putting oral health back on the classroom agenda and teach valuable oral health education. We are dedicated to improving the oral health of young children.
It is a staggering thought, but in Primary Schools across the UK around eight or nine children in every class will have already developed tooth decay.
That’s approaching ¼ million children in each primary school year and around 3.3 million young children aged 0-14 years. That’s why we focus on bringing oral health to all in the classroom. Early education is the key to teeth health.
Teaching Children About Oral Health
School Visits Programme
It is vitally important to teach children about oral health and introduce them to good habits as early as possible. It is equally important to normalise dental visits and put them at ease with the role of a dentist as a person they can trust.
A school visit from one of our Dentists is a great way to engage children in the correct messages they can take home and even into adulthood. It can also be extremely fun. Often, this can have a profound effect on the attitude children will have towards the oral health and visiting the Dentist.
The school visits educate children on the basic messages all the way up to some of the more detailed ways in which they can improve their oral health.
Our School Visits Include:
Q & A Sessions
Two Minute Challenge
And much more...
